. >> the dana show joins us. nice to see you, dana. >> dana, a lot of attention on the president's 15 or 20 minutes or half hour on "the tonight show." of course today was at camp pendleton speaking to soldiers. that gets most of the attention. do you have the sense that the people you speak to on your radio show are satisfied that his attention is full speed ahead on the american people? >> no, people are not satisfied and it was really smart of him to go on jay leno. he can say he answered questions without really having to answer questions concerning all of the scandals about benghazi. the people who don't watch the headlines, they get a couple of seconds on the local news, but they stay up to watch late night television. answering things without really having to answer. the people who are most active and register and go door-to-door, those people who energize debates and elections, they are very unsatisfied. they feel that no questions are being answered. people are disgruntled. there is no transparency by this administration as the most transparent ever. >> where is the white house pre
. "state of the union" with candy crowley begins right now. >>> i'm dana bash in for candy crowley with breaking news we're following out of syria. a u.s. official tells cnn there's very little doubt that the assad government used chemical weapons against civilians. syria's government today said it will allow u.n. weapons inspectors to investigate the site where the alleged attack occurred on wednesday. the syrian government denies responsibility and is blaming rebels for the attack that reportedly killed 1300 people. now the incident is testing already-frayed relations between the united states and russia, which is warning the u.s. not to jump to conclusions about the syrian government. meanwhile, the pentagon has prepositioned four warships armed with cruise missiles in the region. joining me now is cnn's pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, and cnn international correspondent, phil black live in moscow and cnn's fred platkin in damascus. fred, to you first. >> hi, dana. i had an interview earlier today with the deputy foreign minister of syria, who told me that the u.n. weapo
congressional correspondent dana bash joins us from our washington bureau with more on that side of the story. good morning. >> good morning, carol. two members of congress who have been demanding consultation and input on the administration strategy on syria and they also want evidence that the military action, if it is used, would be justified. >> cnn has told top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on a thursday night conference call they have no doubt assad's regime was behind deadly chemical attacks there. revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high-level syrian official which clearly indicates they were responsible for these. the half hour into telephone briefing began moments after british parliament struck at least a short-term blow to u.s. hopes of a coalition defeating a measure authorizing force against syria. though, obama officials insisted no decisions have been made on military action against syria. cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat, the u.s. could engage with or without supp
the country look small. made the presidency look small. >> dana, nice to see you. >> thanks for having me. >> a lot of attention on the president's 15 or 20 minutes or half hour of time he spent on "the tonight show." today he was at camp pendleton. but last night gets the attention. do you have the sense that the people you speak to on your radio show are satisfied that his attention is full speed ahead on the american people? >> people aren't satisfied. it was actually smart of him to go on jay leno. then he can say he answered questions without really having to answer questions concerning all of the scandals, questions about benghazi. it was softball. that's for the low information voter, the people who don't watch the headlines. they will get it from a couple of 30 second s on the local news and that's it. but they stay up to watch late night television. he was able to answer things without really having to answer them. unfortunately the people who are really most active, the ones who go out and register the voters, go door to door, the people who energized the base and energize elect
completely different in the nsa -- >> but he said it so well. >> day in a, talk about -- dana, what do you think of his remarks? did it come too late? he covered a lot of ground. >> okay. i think it was three weeks too late. i would have said that he should have done this press conference about three weeks ago because when he said that all of these things in washington were phony scandals, one of them that he's talking about is the nsa issue. i have defended the president on all this and i keep asking, could you help us defend you. he did something today, he made very clear he's gog have four-point plan and talked about the four-point plan. it's amazing when you have unemployment at what it is, the part-time jobs issue, he wants to talk about the middle class and he's talking about section 215 of the patriot act? we are down way, way, way down in the weeds. i think again, he could have done it three weeks ago. i would have said he should have done more about the middle class up at the top. i don't think the announcement needed to be about this. >> before he got smacked around by the presid
to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
, the robin thick song. he wants to know when did dana lohse become a backup singer. you know. [ laughter ] ♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> stephanie: all right. [ applause ] >> stephanie: you could alternatively put a boinking turtle in there. oh, no. [♪breaking news theme] >> stephanie: dozens of gay couples began tying the not in minnesota. as you know, every straight couple ever is so romantic. [♪ romantic music ] >> stephanie: it's a perfect love story. a tennessee woman is accused of hiding meth in her dentures so she could pass it to her would-be husband in jail. she planned to marry an inmate and inquired as to how she would be able to kiss him. after an officer noticed she was having trouble keeping her dentures in place, they investigated and found a package of meth. >> that is true love. >> stephanie: and that is love. would you smuggle meth in your dentures for somebody? i mean come on. that is love. >> no. >> stephanie: all right. speaking of love. this is actually a question. robert -- let's see, writes, steph, i have a problem which i thought you would be able to
's go to capitol hill. dana bash is standing by. even before the president has spoken, tan ndana, some republi already starting with some preemptive reaction, shall we call it. >> reporter: that's right. it's going on so far in private in conversations that i've had with some republicans here on capitol hill. the nsa surveillance program is one of the few areas where you've actually seen republicans agree with the president. think that this program is the right thing to do for american security. so expect republicans to say that they're concerned about what jessica reported, widening the transparency of this program. because they say the problem isn't the program, it's the way the president has communicated about it or maybe the better way to say it, has not communicated about it. i think you're going to see some criticism, maybe skepticism on the republican side. the whole question, though, is what democrats are going to do. because they have been probably the most vocal critics of this program. particularly those on the left. you have senators like mark udall of colorado. i just spok
, he both -- lost both of them from both sides of the aisle. this week on "newsmakers," we had dana rohrabacher, who chairs the foreign relations committee on europe, eurasia, an emerging threat. he offered up his views on russia and the u.s. canceling that meeting between putin and obama. [video clip] it is imperative we have a good relationship with russia. yet we have this administration -- many republicans as well -- pushing russia away, still thinking about russia as it was during the cold war. this is no good for the cause of peace, and no good for us. >> russia is hosting edward snowden, who u.s. officials have said is the most damaging leaker in american history. i think what mr. snowden did, by alerting the american people to over surveillance on the part of our own government of our population, to call him a traitor -- he was being loyal to the rest of us by letting the american people know that their government was getting out of hand. host: that was congressman dana rohrabacher, republican of california. he serves as a member of the foreign affairs committee. you can see
. >> all right, dana, i have a feeling many updates for you throughout the morning. we'll check back in. >>> joining us now with reaction and sort of deep thoughts on this breaking news, dan rather and anchoring manager, thanks for bringing some breaking news to us. i'm just kidding. >> i'd love to take credit for it. >> what are your thoughts on this, on this nsa leak situation broadly, but especially this latest breaking news. they've threatened for a while that edward snowden is going to try to get out of the airport and try to find even temporary asylum in russia. now it's happened. that's not good for a u.s./russia diplomatic relations. >> sthere wasn't much they coul do about it. but the important thing about this in terms of international relationships is that the united states under the obama administration some time ago said they wanted to reboot relationships with russia, get things better. things have, in fact, gotten worse to the point now but this setback. that's the overall framework of what's happening. this does not look good for the obama administration. they'll have th
to acknowledge members of congress who are here including susan davis, darrell issa and dana rohrabacher. now, i've got to tell you the truth. i've been looking forward to this visit because -- this is a little tricky to say this. but my family and i, we've got a special place in our hearts for the marine corps. now, part of it is because every day at the white house, we're surrounded by marines. in fact, we probably got some folks here who were at the white house who are now here at camp pendleton. see? i figured as much. then, of course, every time i need to -- kind of a hop, skip and a jump somewhere, every time i get on marine one, i rely on some of the best aviators in the world. i've seen your honor. i've seen your courage. i've seen your commitment. whether in protecting our diplomatic posts around the world or preparing to deploy to iraq or afghanistan or recovering from wounds received in battle. you know, a few years ago, you gave a great camp pendleton welcome to my wife, michelle. and i know it's not as exciting when i come to visit, but she says hi. i guess i'm kind of like that arm
hillbillies can learn. dana says in a country where shows like duck dynasty and the kardashians are huge hits is the deen king poll results hard to believe? you can chime in at twitter at bpshow. >> bill: they are hard to believe. there's some iconic figures you would think like george washington. abraham lincoln. martin luther king jr. put him up there. paula deen? michael's calling from chicago. hey, michael. >> caller: hey, bill, how you doing today? >> bill: i'm good. what do you think about this? >> caller: well, you know, i have some family from the south and you know, i think one of the things that's going on here you know, i don't think the data necessarily represents or gives a full picture. paula deen reminds me of my aunt and my mom and just like my aunt and mom, they say a lot of stupid things that i wish they wouldn't have and they're embarrassing but you still love them anyway. i think what we're overlooking in the south is you know, we're talking about a people who -- sometimes the outrageous from xenophobic to we know who -- we identify with. paula deen in georgia, that's her

[applause] >> thank you, henry. i'm joe at the american enterprise institute. i have the honor of introducing the panel. before i say a little something about them, i want to quote what i think is the single clearest sharpest statement about the state of health policy i have read in a long time. it's in the -- beginning of this report. this is -- , by the way, this is a report we're talking about. as to both world uniting universal coverage and both choice in health care. the statement is insurance marketplace and relies on a variety of stop get measures to prevent the collapse. if that isn't the american way, i don't know what it is. in any event, the great to have an market-based alternative to other plans that have been floating around. it's sort of interesting
